Call For Papers: GreenMetrics 2012 Workshop
Monday June 11, 2012
Imperial College, London, UK

In conjunction with SIGMETRICS/Performance 2012

Sustainability is a topic of increasing importance in modern society.
The primary objective of this workshop is to explore how improvements
to or new uses of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can
improve the environmental, economic and/or social sustainability of
ICT systems, networks, and applications and of non-ICT processes
(e.g., quantify the reduction in cost or carbon emissions from using
telepresence services instead of travel).

Topics of interest fall broadly into three main areas
•	Designing sustainable ICT: Such work includes research measuring,
evaluating, or designing energy efficient systems in data centers,
networking and communication protocols, etc.
•	ICT for sustainability: Such work includes research proposing new
uses of ICT to improve the environmental, economic, and/or social
sustainability of non-ICT processes.
•	Building a smarter, more sustainable electricity grid: Such work
includes research addressing the challenges (both engineering and
economic) that come from incorporating increasing penetration of
renewable energy into the grid, demand-response techniques, and

This workshop is intended to bring together researchers from the
(traditional) SIGMETRICS and Performance communities with researchers
and practitioners in the three areas above, to exchange technical
ideas and experiences on issues related to sustainability and ICT.
The workshop will include a mixture of invited talks and presentations
of accepted papers, and will serve as a forum for the SIGMETRICS and
Performance communities to apply their techniques to this emerging and
important area.

An award will be presented for the best student paper.
